Germany vs Spain
UEFA Nations League A
Date: Thursday, 3 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Arena.
The Nations League has a banger of a fixture in its first match-day itself. Both these teams are expected to make a deep run into the competition, and are locking horns with each other this early in the tournament.
The other two teams in the A4 Group are Ukraine and Switzerland, and it goes without saying that either of La Roja or the Die Mannschaft will be expected to top the standings. And as per the rules of the competition – the first team from each group in League A will move to the finals.
Likely, the winner of this upcoming encounter will be the odds-on favorite to make it to the finals from A4.
After a terrible showing in the previous edition of this contest, it’s important for both these heavy-hitters to leave an impressive mark in the Nations League this time around.
Moreover, the Euro Cup is scheduled to be conducted next year, and this will probably be a dress rehearsal for the likes of these teams.
Considering the abundance of attacking talent on both sides, the style of play of both these squads , and the high stakes involved – expect a high-scoring thriller this Thursday at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
Germany vs Spain: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns, spoils were shared with a 1-1 scoreline.

- Four of the preceding seven encounters had goals from both teams.
- Since 2000, only once have Joachim Low’s men won against this opponent.
Germany vs Spain: Prediction
These two teams had taken on each other in the final of Euro Cup 2008, and two years later in the semi-final of World Cup 2010. On both occasions, La Roja managed to secure the win with a 1-0 scorecard.
Likely, the Die Mannschaft will be looking for revenge, and after their nosedive in performances in the international arena after their 2014 World Cup triumph, this will be a great opportunity to make a comeback.
Low has injected young blood into his squad, and judging by the spirit his players had shown in the Euro qualifiers, expect them to come out with guns blazing. Keep note that they had scored a total of 27 goals from their past seven match-ups.
Meanwhile, Enrique’s men have been tearing it up lately after their surprising exit in the 2018 World Cup against Russia in the Round of 16. They are unbeaten since November of 2018, and have registered a 12-0 combined scorecard from their last two games.
Moreover, this game will set the tone for how standings in the A4 group will turn out to be, and the winner of this upcoming clash will most probably top the standings.
As such, expect the exciting and enormous attacking talent from both teams to show up with intent this Thursday, and terrorize either defense throughout the ninety minutes. Logically, the BTTS and Over 2.5 Match Goals bets are counted on to make huge returns.
